A real or a bogus alien abduction?

Anomalist posted this link about a camera-captured alien abduction:

And in that story was this link to the camera footage that shows a women in bed, who "melts" into it and then reappears several minutes later:

The camera footage (from YouTube)

It's a strange story and a stranger piece of video.

Wait patiently for the "melting" to occur, then I'd be interested in what you blokes think about the video and story...(and let's not be silly this time around).

  • The background story is suspicious. The CCTV equipment is apparently a professional quality supplied by a manufacturer for the commercial security sector. The HD which records the footage can be set to low resolution for recording over several months. Likewise it can be set to higher resolution for shorter periods.

    The couple involved have apparently opted for the low-res setting. Fair enough? It's their choice and maybe reasonable...

    The claim that the footage is impossible to convert to other formats is not true. This raises questions of honesty. Why make a claim that is not true?

    Watching the footage, it's easy to envisage several ways to stage the 'abduction.' It looks contrived and fake.

    It's the same MO of people uploading jpegs of UFOs and making excuses why they can't upload raw images with the EXIF data intact.

    Sure, it 'could' be real, but the claim doesn't come with evidence that is 'extraordinary' enough to raise a jaded eyebrow.

  • You have to admit, Kandinsky, that the ruse is good one -- the hoax, if it is one, is nifty.

    I think the blogger or TV producers were the ones who said the image couldn't be converted for PCs -- not the "victim(s)."

    At any rate, it's good sleight of hand, or body as the case may be.

    (And the woman has a hefty body, so maybe the bed just gave way.)

  • I think it's pretty good evidence that you can cut a hole in your mattress and "vanish" while completely covered by a sheet.

    That the "hump" upon return goes far higher than the body speaks volumes about what's going on under there.

    Well there's that and we're also seeing a video of a video, online. Talk about hiding a multitude of sins.

  • It is good. In honesty, I was only as quick with the details after reading up on the background recently.

    Hollywood is missing a great opportunity for a sci-fi/horror movie on abduction themes. Instead of Freddy Krueger or Saw, it could be evil alien physicians.

  • JR:

    But who would have had the oomph to push that hefty woman back up, in place?

    Or did they use a pneumatic jack of some kind?

    It's a good bit of legerdemain; Houdini would have been impressed.

    (That the abduction goes down rather than up is interesting too.)

  • RR-
    She pushes herself up. That's the reason for the high point in the "return". She has to get herself above the opening in the bed.

    By Blogger JR, at Friday, May 06, 2011  

  • Well, JR, I give her props for the effort, physical and abductionary.

  • Bogus, amateurish hoax. Plain and simple. Next?

  • Steve, like Anthony Bragalia and others, you think the clip and story is a hoax, with which I do not necessarily disagree.

    But tell us why you think so.

    It's a pretty good hoax, if it is, indeed, a hoax.

  • My sense of this is there is no compelling evidence that the woman was present on a standard mattress.This is obvious and is inferred by a misdirection of attention by the presence of the blanket. In addition,this is an easy hoax to do with an inflatable, pneumatic mattress using one single bed box frame and the inflatable on the other half of the double bed, hidden by the blankets. I suspect that I could easily do this myself and would if I was interested enough in the artistry of hoaxing. Yawn.

  • P.s The blankets were most likely held in place appearing to be resting on a flat surface as they were tacked to a frame surrounding the circumference of the inflatable mattress.I left that bit out.

  • You fellows are such non-believers!

    The "abduction" may be real or it's a great hoax/fakery.

    I like it either way.

  • Hi All,

    I think JR, among others, debunks it nicely.

    Besides when we read of the reports of nighttime bedroom abductions [to use as some comparison] - by far the 'abductee', if conscious, claims to be paralyzed first or right after noticing 'greys' approaching... then is floated out through a window (or even through solid walls) with varying degrees of observations and memory until he or she is inside something (presumeably a ufo).
